More about best kind radeon 7970
  1. there are only 2 differences between ghz and normal and that is clock speed and power the ghz run faster and draws more power not much though

    and to answer your question the ghz is better

    1 if you are going to overclock buy a normal 7970 better bang for your buck
    2 if you are not going to overclock get a ghz edition

    id say these are the 2 best for option 1 and 2

    this is the best ghz edition plus you get crysis 3 for free awesome game

    hope I helped
  2. I like the VisionTek AMD Radeon HD 7950. review and compare different models here:
    http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/4672/visiontek_radeon_hd_7950_3gb_video_card_overclocked_review/index.html
    It actually is a bitchin' card.
  3. The Sapphire Vapor X 7970 has a very good cooling. A very good over clocker especially with the latest drivers. A popular choice that has been proven over and over again, so you can't go wrong.

    MSI Lightning is another good overclocker but just too pricey:

    I read an article on the XFX which has very good results. I'll try to dig it up. Ultimately I would go with whatever is cheaper.
  4. I can afford anyone o those cards. but is the saphire card really heavy because all the reveiws say that it sags after a few months?
  5. I think the sagging issue was aimed at the asrock extreme 4. I could be wrong but apparently its just a thinner pcb.

    That Bu** SH**! I have more than enough friends who are using 7970 and 7870 cards from SAPPHIRE including myself for a long time now. we are all addicted Gamers and play almost 10hrs a day and belive me I've not opened my case since I've installed this card. Sapphire is a great manufacturer.

    Sorry for arrogance! cant hear a word against SAPPHIRE

    I am using a Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card which i had bought for Rs 30000/- Indian rupee


    This is an absolutely amazing card. I was a bit reluctant to buy it first considering the price, but this card being the most fastest single GPU card as of now and it's ability to max-out *any* game; it's worth the cost. Additionally Sapphire bundles the card with a ton of connectors, so you don't have to buy them separately.

    I play Crysis{1,2}, Battlefield 3, Dirt 3 at maxed-out details/high-res and this card handles it like butter. You can expect very efficient power consumption due to the 28nm GPU spec (Tahiti core).

    This card it ready for AMD Eyefinity and the overclocking utility by Sapphire makes it very easy to push the clock speeds much higher.

    I haven't yet overclocked it and its not necessary actually

    I would recommend this card to anyone interested in gaming with all details maxed-out :-). If you have the money now; go for it !!!
  10. ok thanks i think i am goin to get the sapphire
